  2. Morning, Straight off the bat, one would think that today’s 1950s Zorba, although apparently a previously unrecorded brand, was French. It has Émile Cattin’s Gallic cockerel logo (he of Mortima fame and decidedly French) and runs on his Cattin C66 movement. However, a new-ish entry in Mikrolisk’s database now attributes the brand name solely to Hans Beat Waldmann of Switzerland. Adding to the mix, the dial also bears the legend “Foreign”, usually associated with German-made watches from that period and which I’ve never yet seen on a contemporaneous French watch. Of course, cross-border co-operations in the world of vintage watches were by no means unknown but the seemingly conflicting identifiers with this example had piqued my interest enough to buy it. Incidentally, the Cattin Co. was reportedly sold in 1990 to a Canary Islands company who then used the Mortima brand name and the same rooster logo for their range of sunglasses. Regards.

  22. To the left and on the right for the time being, this morning’s delivery, an impulse purchase from Meranom. I asked them to swap the bezel and then began to have regrets. On second look, post purchase, the dial looked more teal on the site and I went for the green bezel. I thought it was going to look a right mess. The face is actually a bit darker than it looked and I really like it. The date is a day out and I’m not doing the Vostok date thing to move it on 30 days so it’s being taken off until tomorrow in a minute

  26. Was reminded about this watch in another thread so it gets a run out today. Really like this watch but I don't wear it enough. But I will probably never sell it. What a predicament! Going to try and give it more wrist time!

  27. Not high horology, maybe not even low horology, but it's the only solar powered watch I own as I thought I'd like to see what they are like. It's my solar beater, and although it was the cheapest solar I could find, and it is not without some design faults...it's alright...yes that's about it...it's ok.

  40. I know you own some fantastic watches, but the Dornblüth's are my favourite. ( I'm saying 'Dornblüth's' as I'm sure I've seen more than this one) Beautifully decorated movements, without going too far, dials to die for. Definitely on my shopping list. Thanks for sharing.
